Thurston & Ixworth July’19

Annual cycling event features two new distances.

The Edge, an annual cycling event which raises money for St Nicholas Hospice Care, features two new
distances. The cycle ride returns on Sunday, 14 July, and will this year offer routes of 30, 60, or 100 miles.

The event sponsored by Vindis Skoda Bury St Edmunds, will start and finish at Maglia Rosso cycling café
in Hawstead, who are also event partners. Chris Hervey-Murray, head of business at Skoda Bury St Edmunds, said: “We are aware of the important work that the Hospice does across the community, helping those when they need it most and with Vindis, being a local business we are always looking for ways we can support the good causes.”

Barry Denny, owner of Maglia Rosso, said: “We are sure it will be an excellent event, proving a challenge for all the riders and raising funds for a great cause.”

Registration for The Edge starts from £25 and is open to anyone over the age of 14. All riders will receive a free snood with their registration and medal at the finish. Money raised from the event will go towards St Nicholas Hospice Care, a charity that supports people living with dying, death and grief in the West Suffolk and Thetford area.
